LANL: First month challenging for new director

By John Severance

Los Alamos Site Office Manager Kevin Smith probably summed it best when it comes to LANL Director Charlie McMillan.

“It was a good first month challenge for a new lab director,” Smith said.

McMillan, attending his first regional community leaders’ breakfast as director, assumed the post at the beginning of June. But on June 26, the Las Conchas Fire erupted, threatening the lab and the townsite.

McMillan put himself up front and center during the crisis, attending daily news conferences at Ashley Pond. And most of what the lab went through during the fire already has been well documented.

On Thursday at the El Dorado Hotel in Santa Fe, McMillan, once again, thanked all the firefighters and community members who volunteered their services.

“After the Cerro Grande Fire, the government made some substantial investments,” McMillan said. “An Emergency Operations Center was built and the people in the center all worked efficiently. Around lab property, the fuels were thinned to reduce the risk of the fire spreading. I believe the investments that were made helped protect the lab, the nuclear facilities and the community at large.”
